Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.

More than ever, businesses are considering a cloud solution for their enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment over an on-premises system. Cloud technology appeals to these companies because updates and fixes occur automatically with little or no effort from internal IT staff, and because cloud-based solutions provide access to real-time data from anywhere. Employees want tools that make it easier for them to complete everyday tasks and make informed decisions that help the business grow.

The global electronics industry is the cornerstone of
the digital economy and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Electronic devices act as conduits for users’ digital
experiences, which are now seamlessly enabled and
updated in the cloud. The industry’s digital device
success has also introduced its latest challenge: going

key to delivering greater value. Doing so requires
electronics firms to flawlessly integrate hardware,

The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered.
This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right
stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure,
compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.
Delivering high-quality services with greater speed and efficiency is one of the greatest pressures facing your information technology (IT) infrastructure. The rise of computing in the cloud, expansive mobility options, and increasing pressure to boost application performance have added even further complexity - leading to inefficiencies that can limit your opportunity for growth and success. Traditional, siloed IT infrastructures are often too labor intensive, inefficient, and slow to overcome these challenges. Organizations need a converged, cloud-ready, software defined infrastructure to help them meet the evolving demands of their business.
Cloud is not simply a new technology platform, it’s a new way of running your IT processes. Success changes relationships with users, with services and with operations. Learn what to anticipate as you embark on cloud – and how to ensure success not just in your datacenter, but in your business.
